A beautiful custom design inspired by a Joseph Jewelry classic, ring #100771, this orange sapphire and diamond mokume engagement ring combines several distinct design elements to create a beautiful finished product. The stunning orange color of the center stone is highlighted beautifully by the diamonds to each side, and the subtle mokume-gane design on the band complements the stones perfectly to create a piece that will catch anyone’s eye.
Center Stone and Diamonds
While blue is the color most commonly associated with sapphires, this gemstone actually occurs naturally in several different colors, including the orange stone used in this design. The round cut of the sapphire in this ring is nicely complemented by its prong setting, which blends smoothly into the filigree below.
Like the larger center sapphire, the diamonds on each side are round-cut and held in place with a prong setting, lending a nice overall balance to the piece. Their brilliant white highlights the depth of color of the center stone, while simultaneously adding a sense of refinement to the ring as a whole.
This ring also features a mokume-gane inlay that starts at the base of the diamonds and runs down the outside of the shank. The matte finish of this inlay accentuates the effect of the wood-grain pattern, serving to draw attention to this particular detail while not letting it overshadow the main features of the piece. And since every mokume-gane pattern is unique, you can be sure no one else will have a ring quite like this one. Similar styles of Mokume Gane Engagement Rings.
The band itself is available in several different metals, so you can choose the one best suited to your needs and lifestyle. Options include both 14 Kt and 18 Kt gold, as well as platinum and palladium. Gold is a very traditional choice and a good option for engagement rings, while platinum and palladium have recently been gaining in popularity. These alternative metals are both hypo-allergenic, and their impressive durability lets them serve as a powerful symbol of the way your love will endure and remain strong over time.
Matching Wedding Bands
This engagement ring was designed as part of a set of matching His and Hers wedding bands. The men’s wedding ring is forged from the same mokume-gane stock as is used in the women’s ring to ensure a similar look and feel for all pieces of the set. But each ring will still have its own distinctive pattern due to the nature of this particular forging technique. If you’re looking for a truly unique way to represent your love and the strength of the commitment you’re making to each other, this ring is a great option. Matching Men's Band

My fiance' and I are not the kind of people who follow the norm. We are constantly seeking unique items for our home and even our attire. She is a professional artist and I am an historian and professional mariner having spent a good amount of time in the tall ship community. When we decided to marry we began searching for unique rings that would fit our style and personalities. In our search we discovered Makume Gane and focused our search for the best artisan of that style. We found many who made makume, but we were taken by the work that Joseph Jewelry showed on their site. I initiated a conversation with Joseph online through their custom design page. Everyone I dealt with was fantastic, understanding and highly professional. The design process went smoothly with tremendous communication throughout. When the rings arrived I was floored by their beauty and quality. Heather's engagement ring is tremendous, set with a stunning orange sapphire and two high quality diamonds. The makume gane bands are breathtaking and I cannot wait to wear mine. It can sometimes be a bit unnerving to make such high dollar, custom purchases long distance, but I would not hesitate to recommend Joseph Jewelry to anyone and I know that I will turn to them again for those special jewelry purchases in the future.
